My Brain Has Exploded Just a Little

I'm pretty lame these days, which is whyfor the lack of writing. HEY INTERNETS, I WIPED UP MORE POOP TODAY! Woot woot.

Miss Thang is awesome, but we are still struggling with sleep. It comes and goes. Right now it's basically gone, and I am pretty sure that as of tonight, I've snapped. Hence the 3:00 AM posting. I haven't slept yet tonight, so after four hours of sporadically lying in bed (mixed in with getting up to get the baby [is she a baby still? She's practically two]) every 45 minutes or so) I decided to get the fuck up out of bed and troll the internet for new entertainment (FOUND) and maybe write a blog post. Here I am! Taking advantage of my sleep deprivation to check in with the ol' computer.

Boy, am I going to be a joy to be around tomorrow!

I wish I had exciting news for you, but I don't. Our recent weeks have involved a quick trip to Michigan, wherein we had a nice time and Miss Thang's tenuous sleep routine was smashed to hell. Then we came home and re-found a semblance of a routine and then Miss Thang got a cold and said routine got re-smashed to hell. Also, doctor visits with a kid whose long-term memory is developed just enough to remember shots. So...fun.

Um. I've tried to make a few pies with varying amounts of success this summer. Any attempts at Martha Stewart-ing were completely undone by the state of my kitchen after those forays into baking. Also it turned out that neither The Funasaurus nor Miss Thang like pie, so I ate a lot of pie myself. The lack of non-maternity pants that still fit indicate that perhaps my next foray should be salads. With no dressing or bacon bits.

That's about it for now. Off to have myself a little dance party with iTunes set on SUPER UBER LOW so that one toddler does not wake again, since sleep still eludes.

I am sorry I am not funnier. I will try again before another month goes by. Did you clink on the link up there? That will make up for all my lack of funny. Seriously. Here's another. CLICK!

I hope you enjoyed your muted dance party ;) I cannot even imagine what a mess I would be in your sleepless condition, so I thought this was a very well put together post! My mom always made the most incredible pies, so I've always been terrified to make them myself because I just know they won't measure up. We usually make them together when she visits, and then I pretend I am an awesome pie-maker. It's good for my self-esteem.

Feeling your pain....our 'baby' (2 and 5 mos - are they really THAT close in age??) stays up late - will not go to bed before 10 pm most nights and usually sneaks out of his bed (crib) to come join us in the middle of the night - thus sleep is a group sport in our bed. :sigh: I've no idea what to do b/c my other kids were good sleepers.

I too am not writing much - if you look at my (new) blog my last post was 2 months ago!

Hang in there....

I hope you are not complaining that you got to eat the whole pie by yourself. :)

You're still funny! Your 3AM ramblings made me laugh. I've had varying success with pies over the last few years (too many fruit trees in our garden). It's the pastry that does me in. The fucking pastry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it fucking doesn't work at all. WTF? I have now begun using frozen puff pastry to make fruit "tarts." Yummy! And oh-so-easy. Recommend! :-)

I'm so happy to hear that someone else has a child over 1 that gives them sleep trouble - although I'm sorry for you to have to experience that.

I do that ALL the time. Make something that's super fatty that only I enjoy. And then have to throw it away after I realize I've been shoving pie crust into my mouth for fifteen minutes straight while staring out of a window.
